So You Want to Be a GM

Fast-paced action and daring heroics. Countless species. Unique opportunities. Thousands of planets with sweeping expanses of unexplored space. If you're interested in becoming a GM for Fantasy Flight Game's Star Wars RPG, I've got some good news for you: you already are.

Never before have I seen a system that is so easy to jump in to as both a GM and a player. Never role played before? Not a problem! Want to run your own game? Sure! That's part of the beauty of what Jay Little and the rest of the team at FFG have created: we have before us a rich and dynamic system that can accomodate any style of gamer and at any level of experience, even mixing players of varying levels seamelessly into one group!

Here we're going to explore the various aspects of Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, and Force and Destiny. We'll talk about mechanics and rules, character creation and group dynamics, writing engaging stories that call upon every member of the party and play to their strengths and weaknesses, and tools you can use to help you make the most of your experience both in and out of the game.

So sit back, grab your notepad, and get ready to tap into a universe overflowing with opportunities for endless adventures!
